Broomfield Blues week 3: Acoustic Roots Blues

Bandstand, Broomfield Park

201908 broomfield bluesOur part of north London plays host to one of London's top Blues clubs - St Harmonica's, now held weekly at the fantastic Southgate Club. The club has been nominated as Best Blues Venue in the UK Blues Forum's annual awards. Together with the Vintage Blues Music Association, our sponsor Winkworth, and a host of supporting friends, the Friends of Broomfield Park are delighted to bring you another August full of the best in British and international Blues.

Broomfield Blues is our annual celebration and showcase of what can be found every week at St Harmonica's. Each Sunday afternoon during August come along to the Broomfield Park bandstand, eat, drink and listen to three hours of some great music.

If you like what you hear all we ask is that you acknowledge that by contributing to the collection "hat", either when it does the rounds, or via the control site.

Local charities will be present offering teas and coffee and we have a very fine ice cream stall, a terrific bar and glorious food.

If the weather is dreadful then we will relocate to the Southgate Club, so your Sunday afternoon entertainment is guaranteed

Each afternoon is preceded by a one hour "open mic" session at 1:30, offering a stage to up and coming as well as experienced performers. Do support them.
